From the upper pagoda can enjoy the best views of Bich Dong. No wonder that in 1428 two monks decided to lift the pagoda here, entranced by the view of the river and mountains, King Le Canh even wrote a poem in honor of this beautiful place.

At the top of Ngu Nhac mountain we have the statue of a Mandarin, which contemplates the spectacular landscapes of Hoa Lu to the horizon.
